Conservative politicians had better wake up and take control of some of these issues or they can forget about 2014 and 2016!
    If they continue to obsess over this non-issue and continue to try to make a mountain out of something that is nothing more than an unfortunate incident at an American outpost in a war-torn country, rather then focus on real policy, they will continue to come across as non-substantive buffoons and most certainly will lose in 2016. The problem with Republicans is they are good at creating scandal, but no nothing about how to identify and prosecute one.

    Shape-shifting blameless unaccountable ghosts at Foggy Bottom.

    Feinstein even came out yestersay and specifically defended Hillary, who wasn't even mentioned..

    (asides from the attack was caused by the video, which is patently false - known in the first few minutes it WAS a terror attack)

    This was entirely political-Obama was in the middle of the campaign and was saying AQ is on run.

    Except they werent, and on 9/11 they killed our ambassador and the heros who tried to save him.

    For political expediency, the Obama administration tried to paint this as another issue.

    That really happened, and those people really died, on 911, by AQ.

    But remember, its a fake scandal-because liberals say so.

    Lets see how this seems in 2 years...

    Seems subjective. I certainly saw a lot about it, and many responded. How much is the right amount?

    Upside's preferred response to Benghazi I guess should be something along the lines of:

    'yeah, 4 people died, including the ambassador....so what? got any pie left?'

    Absolutely! Finding evidence of a political coverup is almost impossible when those responsible continue to lie. Even if a whistleblower came forward, it would be his word against theirs, unless he had documentation.

    I truly believe this attack was worse then Watergate. At least no Americans died in Watergate...........

    The content seemed appropriate, but as i said, subjective.
